just HAD TO share this with you!

The Star Tribune featured an article about Pat Grady, a local artist who creates tangible remembrances using fabric and other textiles. Here are a couple of examples of her work:
  • A woman hired Pat to create a quilt of all of her daughter's childhood skating outfits; she gave the quilt to her daughter as a gift when she left for college.
  • Another woman lost her father, an avid hunter. Pat created tote bags using his hunting gear - hats, clothes, and duck callers. The woman's mother, sisters, and sisters-in-law each received a precious handbag as a tangible remembrance of the man they once loved.
Just beautiful. This touches my heart so.

You'll find a link to the Star Tribune article on Pat's website, as well as several stories regarding her works of heart. You can get to Embellishing Bliss it by clicking here or on the permanent link to the left!
